Routine: Teeko’s Live Remix (A-Trak + Milo & Otis)

A-Trak and Milo & Otis are very prolific DJs and their track “Out the Speakers” is an instant trap banger. The song features an island rhythm with bass and catchy synth stabs but it wasn’t untouchable. San Francisco DJ, Teeko, took the track to his studio and decided to create a live remix routine around it. Using a blend of live synthesizing, controllerism, and turntabilism, Teeko created his own catchy hard hitting version of the track. Watch the routine below and see what gear Teeko brought in to make it all happen.

A Controller, A Synth, & A Turntable = A Live, Turned Up Remix

This routine was unique in a few awesome way. First of all, this remix was totally live and performed with near-perfect precision. Teeko used his great skills as a turntablist, controllerist, and producer to create apiece thats live; in the moment of the music. Second, he blended two different techniques of DJing: controllerism and turntablism. By using the Traktor Kontrol F1 and the Kontrol Z2, Teeko could launch samples and cut in his scratching with ease. The turntable came in to add authentic scratch vibes that added a different varied rhythm to the track. Lastly, Teeko incorporated a Sequential Six-Trak synth which allowed him to literally play his track. This routine blends many different styles to create an overall live performance that shows skill in technology and music.

Teeko will be at the DJ Tech Tools HQ this Saturday to play an exclusive set for the Take Kontrol Workshop featuring the Kontrol S8+ Komplete Kontrol.

    “Teeko used his great skills as a turntablist, controllerist, and producer to create apiece thats live” LOL. This has nothing to with controllerism (wishfull thinking at his best) but rather with Turntablism and the “thinking outside of the box”-attitude that a good turntablist/scratch-musician possesses. But everyone is entitled to have his proper opinion

  • spence

    that turntable tho ????

  • Ferreal

  • Marcus Spano

    Yeah really what model of vestax Turntable is that?

    • PaulHolland DoubleDutchdj

      Vestax Controller One or C1, only 70 were made, developed with the help of Teeko, Woody, Ricci Rucker and Dstyles. By playing middle C note samples on the turntable, you can then select a scale and the buttons around the platter revolve the platter to the selected pitch.

      very hard to find…best bet,and in many ways better is to get a vestax PDX 3000 midi and a small 25 key keyboard right next to it,like this one-
